Coaltar of the Deepers is pretty unusual Shoegaze. I list as Alternative Shoegaze because of the multitude of different influences and quirks that the music brings. Numerous tracks have Electronica influences and synths (a good example is "Automation Structures"), and the track "Wipeout (Retake)" even contains Death Metal growls, a Metallic heaviness and parts with a Japanese folk sound. Very interesting.

Um. Nice review, but the vocalist of COTD is a guy.
